Thanks, Brian and Karl!

How do you think I should format the copyright and license notices? I
can put the legal code in a file named "LICENSE_FOR_PYTHON_BINDINGS"
under the Python bindings. The license will basically say:

The Python bindings for Subversion are distributed under the following terms:

1. [The text of the Subversion license, with copyright statements]
2. [The text of the New BSD license, with copyright statements]

Does that work? For an example of this technique, see the SWIG license:
  http://www.swig.org/copyright.html

In each contributed file from Trac, I'll have three copyright
statements (one for CollabNet, one for Edgewall, and one for
Christopher Lenz), plus a reference to the
"LICENSE_FOR_PYTHON_BINDINGS" file. Does that sound good?

If you're OK with this, I'll start work on it. Should I create a new
branch for this purpose, or should I just keep working in
"python-bindings-improvements"?

Thanks,

David
